Mt. Wilson Update
Some good news today for those worried about the historic Mt. Wilson Observatory, and for broadcasters and viewers worried that the fire would take out the vast array of TV and radio transmission facilities there.
Firefighters returned to the site after being pulled out earlier. They've reportedly built fire breaks around the area and are now more optimistic about saving the area.
Authorities warn fire conditions can change in an instant, and the towers and Observatory are not out of danger yet. Still, just yesterday one fire official was saying it was not a matter of if, but when the area would be raked by flames. Now, at least, there is a measure of hope that the mountain top can be saved.
